When shopping for gardening tools, you want comfort,
meaning that you want a tool that will fit in your hand nicely, not
something that is huge or too heavy for you. Look at the size of
the tool and what it's made of, make sure the wood isn't cracked
(handle) or the blades already bent or can bend easily (often the case
with cheap tools) and then you're ready to compare prices. You
want to buy something that will last, not cheap items that need to be
replaced every year. In the case of many gardening tools, you do
get what you pay for. You may save a few dollars this year, but if
the tools need to be replaced every year, you're not saving money
anymore, and the store where you buy your tools will love you!
top-of-the-line tools need regular cleaning and sharpening to perform
their best. Sharp pruning tools make cleaner cuts, allowing plants to
heal faster, and sharp digging tools save you time and energy.
Sharpening can be done once or more during the season, depending on how
often you use your tools. Regular cleaning throughout the gardening
season also does wonders for your tools, and caring for tool handles can
be a yearly project. Use a whetstone to sharpen pruners and fine
gardening knives (such as Japanese gardening knives).
